    If I'm recalling correctly, 15063 got a few updates before it became the version that got general release. You don't think it could be 16299.something for this one?

    The current head of the Windows Insider Program is Dona Sarkar, not Gabriel Aul and if she uses that term, we can also use it, IMHO.

    Microsoft can call the build that gets general release what they want to call it and we can call it what we want to call it.

    And does she treat us insiders like users & geeks, like Gabe, or like little kids?

    Microsoft is pretty lousy at naming any how.
    Now the latest version for non-insider builds, isn't called "Current Branch" anymore, now they call it "Semi-Annual Channel" depending on the revision.

    Windows 10 Pro IP Build 16299.19 (Branch: RS3 Release)

    RTM = Released to Manufacturing (or Ready to Manufacture, as I like to call it)

    IS a very relevant term which enables us to identify the build which is feature complete and has no time expiry:
    It is the base build (eg 15063.0 etc...) from where computer system manufacturers can start testing and building their specific configuration for their hardware. This is also the stage where we will start to see new patches but not new builds, that only fixes Windows internal bugs and security flaws.

    All this has nothing to do with GA = General Availability, which is just a term when everybody has access to latest Windows version. This will happen much later than RTM. GA build is exactly the same as the RTM build, but it has already received a lot of patches. A new version of Windows will be released to the general public once it's declared stable enough for majority of users, including the non tech savvy ones. RTM is NOT stable enough for all users.

    I like this differentiation. Very clear! Good Job!
